Wooden crosses given to church

Date: 09 January 2012

Two new wooden crosses have been given to a church in Godalming to be used for daily worship in the church.

In early 2011, St Peter & St Paul's church had a brass cross taken from the Lady Chapel. Happily, after an appeal by the Rector Canon Mervyn Roberts and an article in the Surrey Advertiser newspaper that included a photo of the missing cross, someone returned the cross safely to the church.

Then, following a request from the church, Skillway, a charitable organisation working with youngsters who are released from school to undertake carpentry training, responded by offering to make two wooden crosses to replace the metal ones.

The crosses were both made by Jordan Newell, working to a design by Mr Keith Powell and under the guidance of the Skillway team.

The crosses were officially delivered by Jordan and Skillway supervisor Greg Bleach to the Parish Church in Godalming and dedicated on Thursday 15 December.
